Chris + Amanda /// Postlewait's Country Weddings

Absolutely loved getting to shoot Chris and Amanda's wedding at Postlewaits Country Weddings in Canby, Oregon. Everyone was watching the hourly forecast as rain was supposed to be coming and it was going to be an outside wedding. Hour by hour the sun shown, but right as we were starting family portraits the drops began. We were able to adjust the photographs partially indoors, but the ceremony was still going to be outside. We all pulled every umbrella we had and started the ceremony. As the crowd and the wedding party all had umbrellas the smiles were all around. Each person I saw was beaming and just enjoying the ceremony. Weather was going to have no impact on the happiness of this awesome couple and all their friends. What a beautiful experience.

Denise + Jo

This was my 4th wedding I ever shot. The lessons I learned each time I shot were incredible. From small lighting techniques to small positioning of the couple. What a beautiful couple!

Anja + Ryan

This wedding was three years ago and I was getting to co-shoot a wedding for my dear friend, Anja.  It was on the Oregon coast, in Manzanita. I remember the rain was pouring incredibly hard and sideways! The bridal party was incredibly adaptable as we embraced the rain and found a spot to do all the wedding portraits!  Here are a couple of images from the day! Beautiful couple and absolutely wonderful cake! :-)

Look Back to Move Forward

I've had some really big personal changes go on in the past couple of years so I've backed off on photography to heal from those changes and to find out which career direction I should head towards.  The phrase, "Look back to move forward" has been in my mind all day today. After much thought I decided to pull out my old hard drives from the first weddings that I shot. Going through these has been incredible and remembering what it was like to shoot my first wedding has been a lot of fun! 

In the next couple of weeks you will see some of my work and stories from the very beginning! Stay tuned and take a moment to read what is below! :-) 

Love
Sarah
